I do agree that someone needs to be done to make players more aware of the dangers that can come with driving fast cars, and automobiles in general. It still hurts to see one of my all-time favorite players reduced to handing out sticks from a wheel chair while wondering why Chicago Blackhawk Chris Chelios and LA King Luc Robataille are practicing with the Red Wings.
Didn't Konstantinov's accident happen as the result of his limo driver falling asleep at the wheel? If so, the situations aren't similar in any way. Actually, even still they are different because Vlad was a passenger.
